Walter’s “rules” for their getaway strongly suggested the residents not leave the property lines of the House…but how far do they go? It’s not like Sam, the Reporter, to leave a question like that unanswered…but what he finds when he walks the perimeter of the lake might turn out to be the story of his lifetime-however much longer it lasts!

    This new horror book has been slowly unraveling its mysteries over its first two issues, but it's this issue where it breaks out and turns into one of the best comics put out by any company. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Aug 4, 2021

    Tynion's use of a rotating protagonist in each issue is a useful plot device allowing each character to shine without allowing one to push others into the dak. The powerhouse of Bueno and Bellaire again effortlessly paint a stunning world with paradise at the centre surrounding Dante's Inferno. If you have not wanted to pick up the issues yet, this is the time to get all three from your local store. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Aug 4, 2021

    Tynions focus on Sam shows that each character in Nice House has a continents worth of story in them. Not only should we expect more of these single-character studies in the future, but they might also become the some of the best parts of the whole series. Its getting harder and harder to wait for the next installment of The Nice House on the Lake and its looking like it has no intention of letting up on that. Read Full Review

    This story is a revelation. Horrors, existential, interpersonal, and cosmic, burst through the bloody pages of this book. It's a shame that it's only released once a month. Read Full Review

    Alvaro Martinez Bueno delivers some beautiful imagery throughout this issue. There are some great character moments on every page and the details are brilliant. What I really loved was the subtlety of some of the moments, especially the ones that showcased that Sam was not alone. Read Full Review

    It's impressive how neatly the series has laid out its mythos without ever descending into the worst narrative tendencies in comics, instead remaining a character piece. It's for that reason I'm eager to continue exploring with this increasingly harried set of survivors. Read Full Review
